Did I make a good deal?

I currently sold 2 EVGA 7800GTX 256MB for $250.00 which I then bought a EVGA 8800GTS 320MB for $300.00. I only bought the GTS because I plan on upgrading when the 9 series comes out and I wanted to get the most money out of my 7800's.

What do you all think?

That is a good point...I figure that it is only costing me $50.00 to upgrade to a better card so why not.

I would say the 8800GTS is a little faster than 2 7800GTX's. Plus you have the capability of DX10, which the 7800's don't.


You got a good deal. Have fun! :D

Good deal but i have to mention that now you can use FP16+AA too!
I play Battlefield 2142 with my brother(LAN) and i run it 1600x1200+16xAA/16xAF. I didn't check the frame rates but i see no FPS drop with 32 Bots against me and my brother!
Happy Battlefielding! :wink:

Yeah I know...I felt good about it though. I will ask next time I do this :o ), maybe when I sell this for the 9 series.

I can tell you that STALKER looked a ton better with the 8 series card compared to my two 7800's!!!! Although I can not max everything out, seems like the textures on STALKER really kill the card, I guess more video memory would of solved that problem?

What did you use to OC your card? I would like to try to OC mine...I know that it is all ready OC'ed a little bit, it is the super clock version from EVGA.

i dont know about any other cards but apperantly the new evga 320 has a better cooling than a gtx and its mad quiet, at least i find soo. i do have like 5 fans running but it keeps everything cool'd. im about to order 2 more fans to mount onto my thermalright extreme.

Nice! Enjoy your 8800 GTS. :)  I have the ASUS 8800 GTS 320 and all my games run like a dream at 1680x1050.
